how i've kept myself busy
In the last year and a half, I've taken a quick break from developing my own creative work to focus more energy in supporting the growth of the women's organization I co-founded. Above are just some of the ladies who have really challenged me to grow as a person. As someone who has had a history of unhealthy friendships with females, being a part of this collective has been a tremendously positive turning point. For that, I am grateful. To know what I am up to is to know my organization, so you should visit this site. Please support us and the NYC Filipina community!
Also, I turn 27 sometime next week, so please expect a whole verbose and vain entry about myself and change and revelation and blah blah blahhhh.

Hanalei Ramos is a very nice person and a stereotypical aquarius. FACT: while it is a common misconception that “aquarius, the water bearer” is a water sign, it is not. It is actually an air sign! Other than that, she is a proud founding member of Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment, a mass-based organization for Filipinas in the NYC area. Hanalei has also toured around the country as a performer and is the author of Foiled Stars, Letters to Martha, and the one-woman show, Guns and Tampons: A History of Violence Against Women I Know. Hanalei currently lives and works in her native Jersey City, NJ. For more information about her, please visit www.hanaleihanalei.com
